|Five Minute Friday|
Joining with Five Minute Friday sponsored by Lisa-Jo Baker. On each Friday, Lisa-Jo posts a one word prompt and for five minutes we join together as an international community to write what the prompt brings to mind. No rewrite, nor editing just letting the words flow from our hearts.
Today's prompt is Reflect.
I pull together the memories of passed and passing events gathering them together in my heart like ribbons tied to the ends of a bunch of balloons captured in my hands. Holding tight lest they are swept away, floating upwards, pulled from me by the lighter than airy-ness of the multi-colored spheres they are tethered to. As I look back, this year feels like that. Colorful and dull, light and dark, bits and pieces, thoughts and things, prayers and memories, and dreams and nightmares. All encapsulated in their individuality but tied, woven, bound together as a group because they occurred within the same time and space which has been my life these past twelve months. Together, the good and the bad they become beautiful, moving, floating to create the year of moments that is quickly coming to a close and it is a beautiful thing.
